Movie Night – 18” doll :pinterest

Can we all remember back to when we would put our hair up in curlers for Saturday then settle in for the Friday Night Fright Night :eek movie? Get the popcorn and where's the comfy ghan?

Special Stitch:
ehdc: extended half double crochet

It is a technique wherein you pull through only 1loop on your stitch at first and then make you stitch as you normally would. It can apply to sc, dc etc.

Here is a vid tutorial for Esc

With white and 4mm hook. The popcorn is worked in a continuous round. Don’t worry about the starting point… just have at it.

Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. In continuous stitches work [sc, tr] in each stitch OR [sc, dc]. Work in a completely random manner so that you get an effect of some sts (trebles) being higher than others. when it is large enough to fit in your bowl you just quit. *

I filled my bowl with leftover yarn and then just place the popcorn on top – no attaching. * you could break off leaving a long tail and stitch the popcorn in place (over stuffing) by stitching it along the white row of sts.

The ‘afghan’ is the Wheel Lattice square from Dayna’s crochet.



I did make a couple of changes.

. I used a ch 3 on row 3 instead of the ch 5.
. I used a ch 3 instead of ch 5 on row 6.
. I made 4 rows of ch 3 mesh at the end
. My final row was 2dc in ever ch 3 space and [2dc, ch 1, 2 dc] in the corners. My square ended up at 16 inches.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

Darski, those babydoll pajamas are adorable! I'd love a pair of those in MY size! :lol I can just picture them done in Peaches and Creme, they'd be so comfy! Meanwhile, they're just precious on the doll!
